Puppet talk

I had a great idea to use puppets in the classroom

At present my English Club members are working on a show that will last for 15 minutes and hope to present this at Christmas or on Children‘s Day. Try puppets in your own classes. It will make your teaching very enriching, so interesting, and really entertaining.

How monitoring a student's nutrition can make all the difference

By keeping the importance of good nutrition on the agenda, teachers can make a difference. But be a good role model to your students before requesting their participation in eating healthy.


An innovative teacher

Using technology to create interest in language learning

I have been very impressed by one particular Filipino teacher who uses modern technology in his classrooms and is always looking for ways to keep students learning and improve their performance.


The teaching game

Games - I love 'em and I use them in my classroom in every way I can.

Class control

Tips on how to make your kids classes go smoothly

You need to know how to control kids better than they know how to control you. The way you control any class depends on what size class you have and also on the age of the children, but here are some tips on how to keep your class together.


Teacher talking time

What happens if the teacher does a lot of talking in the classroom?

As an English teacher, when I teach, I see to it that my students do more of the talking in class rather than I doing it because I am already good in the language.


Writing activities

Some fun-filled, challenging activities to get your students writing.
